Bible Or Qur’an

Not being religious at all, I try to avoid the subject in this blog, but I think Bible Or Qur’an website deserves a mention. Mission statement from the front page:

The mission of BibleOrQuran is to educate people about the true nature and content of the Bible and Qur’an. False statements such as “81% of the Qur’an is about killing infidels!” and “The bible teaches only peace!” are commonly thrown around with little evidence to back them up. Despite their lack of credibility, however, they still continue to polarize and cause irrational hate and fear. We hope that by showing random Bible or Qur’an passages, we show how similar the two texts are and allay many of the fears of Islam and its teachings.

Simple and effective, for those, of course, who can be convinced…

It happened, not just in front of the Pope, but before a large crowd that had gathered in St. Peter’s Square to hear him give the Angelus Prayer.
